Note: dhcpd configuration

Although I've got 802.11n working on my Asus Eee Box, copy big files between Eee Box and my lap-top over WiFi is slow (as my Time Capsule is far away). So I use a cable for file copying, that's gigabit!

But I have to set my lap-top's ethernet to use DHCP in office, to avoid 2 network configurations on my lap-top, I need my Eee Box to act as a dhcpd, that can automatically assign an IP to my lap-top, but don't harm the router/nameserver configurations on my lap-top, and the existing DHCP in the WiFi network.

I aptituded the dhcp3-server package, and look into the default configuration file, got this code:

subnet netmask {

And it works!
